Which Washington Commanders news stories are hitting the headlines as general manager Adam Peters begins to put his plans into motion?

It was hard to keep up with all the frantic developments connected to the Washington Commanders on Friday. General manager Adam Peters promised big changes in pursuit of molding a contender over time. We are starting to see this put into motion following a flurry of roster transactions.

As expected, the headlines were plentiful. Among the stories causing debate include Peters keeping his options open, potential compensation to trade up for quarterback Caleb Williams, Jamin Davis getting his verdict, and wielding the axe on three veteran pieces before free agency.

Let's delve into each topic in more detail.

Commanders LB Jamin Davis spared jail time

After his McLaren was clocked at 114 miles per hour in a 45 mph zone in Loudoun County, Virginia, linebacker Jamin Davis faced a jury trial that could have resulted in serious consequences. Fortunately for the former first-round pick, his attorney was able to resolve the matter without jail time attached.

Davis had his license suspended for six months and was fined $2,500 plus $176 in court fees. He was also sentenced to 180 days of prison time. This was suspended as a result of the misdemeanor reckless driving charge.

The ex-Kentucky college prospect can consider himself fortunate. Davis will put the matter behind him and look to develop his skills further under the Washington Commanders' new coaching staff. This could also be a contract year for the player if those in power opt not to trigger his fifth-year option.
